How to import big .Mbox file ?
« on: September 18, 2022, 04:06:43 PM »
Hello.
I want to move all my mail from gmail to Roundcube.
Google Takeuot makes .zip files with data in to 1,2,4,10 and 50 GB. Roundcobe can import .Mbox files up to 500 MB. My .Mbox file is 7GB.
Please advise me how to import this large file.
Regards

I think no webmail software is well suited to doing bulk imports. I suggest you either do your import directly on the mail server, you could use a tool like imap-sync for example. Or via a desktop client.
Roundcube Plugins: Contextmenu, SpamAssassin Prefs, and moreā€¦

Through the program eM Client I make export of all files file by file. Then I uploaded all the files to the server.
